This is a wonderful find in the Pearl District – with a wide menu to appeal to the most creative palate. There are “large” dishes as well as “small”. The large dishes are not over-sized so one can order these without worrying about a platter. The menu is creative and inventive with splashes of Asian influence. I had two small... More

Great meal getting the chef suggestions. Everything well made with great flavor and textures. Personally I wasn't that fond of the anchovies and egg but it was well made. Loved the chickpea fries. Service was great with all of the staff helping and delivering. Great place we will be back.

Park Kitchen serves a tapa style menu with hot and cold small plates and has an outstanding and reasonably priced wine list. We chose Andrew Rich's Tabula Rasa, a Rhone blend and an exceptional value! The service is very friendly and quick - always smiling. The Chickpea fries with roasted Squash ketchup are not to be missed!

We ate here for a small group business dinner. Seated at a large rectangular table we were one big happy group. The server, I feel terrible that I forgot her name, was terrific at controlling our crowd, catering to our drink, wine, seating, chatting, etc. the food is family style and every bite was amazing. Even the butter was amazing... More

We sampled a bunch of plates here last night, and almost all of them were very delicious. The radish salad was simple and good; The beet salad with smoked fish was something better than that. I would have never thought to put that combination of tastes together. The homemade pasta with short ribs was decent but a little bland and... More

Okay - but not wonderful. Food was well prepared; menu was different. We had roasted pork shoulder, with missing(?) cornbread dressing, preceeded by radish salad. Served in a timely fashion, with pleasant servers. Table for 2 was very small Nothing special here - and no reason to return. Street-side parking. Not busy when we were there.

Business dinner for 4 on a Monday night. The place was not all all busy with only a few tables occupied. Service was good - attentive, but not hovering or pushy. The menu is, well, interesting. No simple slabs of meat or fish at this place. I had as an appetizer (small plate) a skillet with a fried egg topped... More
